Heres my 95 Super Corsa, Columbus SLX, built with a Veloce 3x10 groupset

At the moment it's a bit dirty as it has done about 1800 miles over the last 3 months.

Lovely bike to ride.

I'll post mine again since the switch to carbon tubulars. Any excuse. Used Campy-compatible tubulars are super values, because few went them.
I also found a Cinelli-branded Selle San Marco saddle to top it off a bit, Cinelli seatpost binder and FD clamp, and a matching Columbus seatpost.
It's approaching UCI minimum, may hit it when I mount some Vittoria Evo Corsa CX tires (less 1/2 lb of old glue!).

There is a very similar frameset on eBay, Columbus Muscle tubing and fork, glossy carbon, no logos at all. I'm being tempted.

1990/1991 cinelli Tiaramisu mountain bike

Help!!! Does anyone know if this bike has any value to a collector or other? I bought it new in 1991 or so. All original parts. I never did ride it much as it was a little big but when I do ride it I always get "cool bike" comments. Maybe that's all it's worth??? The novelty of owning a cool rare bike??? Any info would be great. Thx!

Hello slavedog -
As you probably saw, I have a Tiramisu - posted about a year and a half ago on this thread - with nary a response.

I feel like twin red-headed step children showing up at a highfalutin reunion and nobody willing to claim us. At any rate I, offer unconditional love to our vintage road Cinelli kin.

Regarding fit on your Tiramisu - I found it to have an aggressive stance with the top-tube length and stem. Installing a shorter stem
and adding riser bars could make a big difference in the reach and comfort.

I saw a Tiramisu on Chicago's Craigslist and was almost tempted, but wonder if that was a real Cinelli, so I passed. Are there any markings to indicate it's Cinelli and is the frame made in the Far East? It may pop up again, if so, I'll probably take a look at it. On Chicago's CL, the same bike's are re-listed over and over. So maybe this Tiramisu may come up for sale again!

I was under the impression that these were made by Gary Fisher.

I definitely think they're interesting...it's one of those cases where there probably isn't a whole lot of demand, but there's also not many around. I wouldn't hazzard a guess on value, but I think they're cool and I do think there are others who appreciate them (particularly if it has a campy OR group).

On mine the rear and front DR's, shifters, and hubs are Sachs-Huret Rival.

I located an old thread - http://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vi...e-mtb-atb.html

Unfortunately many pics are no longer available on that link - a shame when pics are lost on this site.

1977 sc

My late 1977 SC. The bike was custom-built for the original owner after Cino took his measurements. The bike was built up like Cino wanted since the owner said that he would accept whatever Cino thought was appropriate. Many seemingly unique features on what must certainly be one of the very last frames where Cino was personally involved in the build process. This is NOT a stock frame, nor a stock build.

Radial front wheel built with special "ridotto" rims and early Phil Wood hubs (Cino was the distributor for Italy of Phil Wood parts.) Frame built for 175 mm cranks (came with two sets of pedals: one set of Campagnolo Superleggeri and another set of Cinelli M71's). First generation 1R stem. Chainset with light drillium treatment. Universal brakes (the model had just come out in 1977). It also has a proper Super Record twin bolt seatpost, not the later Nuovo Super Record seatpost with single bolt.

Since it is far too small for me, I have often thought of selling it but then always change my mind.

Citoyen, that is an interesting bike to say the least. A fellow club member way back had one that color, he got a deal as it had sat at the shop, maybe the color? In the sunlight to my memory it looked quite stunning.

Matching pump too...

Here are two:

'89 Mens Sana in Corpore Sano (a sound mind in a sound body), only made one year, all tricolor:


Unknown model and unknown date of manufacture, Cinelli experts have indicated it is post-'81 based on the lugs and fork crown (or even possibly another Mens Sana), but am open to any and all opinions. Frame was fully re-chromed and restored by Tom Kellogg at Spectrum (long story, but I was not the PO & do not have any record of what it looked like prior to the resto). Pat. 80 SR/NR group sourced in Italy by CicliCorsa. Cables were shortened about 4 inches after this pic was taken:

That's beautiful. If I didn't know any better I would have assumed Supercorsa.

But I have also learned never to say never.

Both turned out exceptionally nice.

Thanks. Do you know if Cinelli ever made any 'non-SC' bikes after the Colombo sale, other than the Sana and it's TT stablemate?
I've not been able to find information on any and it seems kind of odd to me that they'd just have that one small run in 1989.

They got into aluminum in the late 90s, but I believe the Unica started as a steel bike in the early 90s.

I have emailed Cinelli in the past and they have always replied, eventually. You could try them.

The Cinelli Advantage. SLX. Screams late 80s, early 90s. I dig it.

Cinelli Advantage Rennrad Stahl Rahmen, Columbus SLX, Campagnolo Ausfallenden(38 | eBay

They made Centurion's Equipe, and one for Lotus, I believe, which may be different sons of the same mother. Chirico made almost all of the forks after 1984.
I think the clues would lie in the output of Chirico's shop in Bussero, but there's not a lot of information available.

That's the key word. They have always responded to me about strictly Cinelli questions, but it took a while.

Wow!!! Very pretty.

I know squat about Cinellis, but I know a pretty bike when I see one.
